9 year old  🀚Duncan🀚 spent the day with Dr McCravy today having a dental cleaning. He’s still a bit loopy from the anesthesia and probably tipsy from the pain meds. So he’s channeling his inner Grinch tonight because he feels weird!😀 I promise it will all be better in the morning my friend.🀚

Teeth are all clean! He didn’t loose any. We rechecked his Alk Phos and it has gone from 4101 to 1923 in just 3 weeks! We put him on Denamarin and Canine Hepatic Support after the first blood work was done. That along with a diet change has made a big difference in the number. I’ll take that!


The small growth on his toe is a histiocytoma and will go away on it’s own in a few months. So we are going to have a quiet night tonight and get back to business as usual tomorrow!😊

I can’t tell you how happy I am with this boys progress! He’s like an entirely different dog and actually likes ME now! He will be looking at applications and ready for his happily ever after very soon!

As 2021 comes to an end, I want to thank you all for your support and confidence in this rescue and our mission to Leave No Scottie Behind. This year we have had 24 Scotties in our program and helped 3 others to stay in their family home by assisting with some unexpected expenses for medical care. Our vet costs alone were just shy of $24,000. That is on average almost $900/ per dog spent on vet care. We never cut corners and every dog is thoroughly vetted before leaving our rescue. We couldn't do it without YOU!

I have been blessed with the best team of volunteers, an excellent vet team and ‘A list’ supporters! 🐾♥️🐾

Thank you for another wonderful year helping this beautiful breed! Merry Christmas Scottie Family! YOU are our biggest gift! 🎀🏼🎀žðŸŽâ­ï¸

Wild Child Archie

One year old Wild Child Archie has a very important date at noon today. He will be meeting his new people and transitioning to an exciting, fun new life with a family of his very own!

This boy is the definition of energy!! 

Jagger Mann is going to miss their roughhousing, wrestling and tug of war sessions but will probably sleep for 2 weeks now!

Happy Tails Arch Arch!

*Archie is another classic example of wrong breed, wrong family. He is still very much a puppy and got an extra dose of terrier energy when God was handing it out. These guys can’t live in crates 24/7. That shouldn't even have to be said. It's inhumane. If you don't have the energy to give a puppy what it needs to thrive, don't get one. This makes the dog a prisoner and ... you won't be happy with what they find to occupy their time.

A Tail of the Scottie Heart

Cator lives in Charleston, SC and was bound to a strict lockdown from March-June of this year. Only able to connect with the outside world virtually, his two big-hearted Scotties came to his rescue. Fergus and Gareth (SRTSE alumni) were his constant companions and kept Cator regimented as well as distracted from the chaotic world. Their routines stayed on track and as he doated on them on them daily, his fur-buddies reciprocated with the adoration that Cator needed. Not that their bond wasn't already robust but because of this challenging time, its grown by one heart size.


“The cuddles are what helped the most. Humans need touch and when we aren’t allowed to touch other humans, dogs step in to offer such tenderness, connection and warmth. I am grateful for them both and will always be thankful for their companionship through such a trying time.

-Cator Sparks

It was a beautiful April day in Charleston, SC and the weather was a perfect sunny 75 degrees. The human had worked from home for four weeks by now and decided to participate, virtually, in her meeting from the backyard. 

All is going as planned until a participant noticed the Westie/Scottie team behind the human digging and digging. This went on for a few minutes, without the human noticing, because she was presenting. As time passed, more and more participants are distracted by the dynamic duo until one screamed, “I think your dog’s caught something!”

The human frantically turned around and saw a mole dangling from the Westie’s mouth. The human screamed, all of the meeting participants screamed as the Westie threw the mole around, like a toy, while the Scottie sat proud! The human, completely embarrassed, ended the meeting early and proceeded to clean the mouths of the hunters followed by a proper mole burial.

The Serial Ratters struck again, making 2020 interesting for their human and traumatizing for her co-workers. 

Our four-legged family members provide us with comfort and lots of comedic relief. We know we speak for all when we say, we wouldn't have made it through this year without our Scotties by our side.

Thank you, Scottie family for helping us sustain our mission of leaving no Scottie behind and stay tuned for more, Scottie Tails of 2020.

A Scottie Tails Sheriff 02

Moving along his tour, Bogie stopped at each mountain peak

and checked surrounding areas. He frequented forests, hillsides and lakes inspecting each for any issues that may arise. He stood guard for hours-on-end protecting the forest with his bravery.

A Scottie Tails Sheriff 01

Sheriff Bogie took it upon himself to patrol the southeast, from the sea to the tallest peak, confirming all was in order. He was worrisome at first however, his human assured him that he was the right dog for the job and with that, off they went on their 2020 Road Trip.

Sheriff Bogie combed the beaches first, from fish to fossils, making sure that the aquatic environment, of all marine life, was normal. He hit many beaches and found that everything was in place and there were no worries along the coast. Sheriff Bogie was reassured and turned his concern to the mountainside.

Duncan - 2021-12-30

Happy 9th Birthday to this Christmas baby!   🀚Duncan🀚 is settling in but prefers a forever family of his own without women!! He's made it very clear that he's part of the He Man Woman Haters Club and he's not making exceptions!🤪 I can't say that I blame him. Some women can be complicated like that!😀

This little rascal can still be a little prickly but he's slowly getting there. We have him scheduled for a dental after the new year. His ultrasound revealed that all is well and that his heart has indeed grown three times in size since he's been in rescue!❤️🀚❤️

He's had a busy day today playing with the toys that Santa brought last night. And I do mean that he's had FUN!! He does LOVE a toy with a squeaker!! Happiest Birthday big guy!! What a character!!😊

Jagger 12-28-21

⭐️Sheriff Jagger's⭐️ adventures are wrapping-up for 2021 but we have one last story to share. This little lady came into rescue with a heartbreaking tail but of course, a happy ending. The last chapter in the Adventures of Jagger-Scottie Sheriff will be one of ðŸ€€Ms. Abby.🀀

Early December a STRSE volunteer was notified of a Scottie in need at Laurens County Animal Control. She was presumed to be 15 years old and was seized from an unsuitable home. She was living off cat food, hot dogs and a bacteria filled water bowl. The conditions were so deplorable that an arrest warrant was issued for her ill treatment. Within 12 hours STRSE arrived at animal control and she was our 23rd Scottie rescued this year. She had a full spa day, including three baths, and was introduced to our Scottie family as Abby. We were thrilled to discover that she was actually 10 years old but saddened to realized that she was extremely frightened and timid. She saw Dr. McCravy for an exam, dental, blood work and a microchip. She had a significant limp and a lightning bolt scar on her back. This was most likely from being kicked and burned.

Sheriff Jagger knew that he had his paws full with this one. It was clear that Abby hasn't  trusted a human in a long time. He immediately started showing her that humans can be kind and that it's safe to relax. Through the activity of play, Abby chose to start enjoying life rather than sitting in fear. They played for days rolling around inside, fetching outside and taking naps in the sun. She started trusting her foster family and decided closeness wasn't scary. Over time her limp disappeared allowing her to run and chase whatever her little Scottie heart desired.

Sheriff Jagger encouraged Abby to revert to her happier days and broke her barrier. She was adopted, a few weeks later, by a wonderful family in Florida. She has two fur-sisters, a sunny spot to sunbathe, beach access and endless lizards to hunt. We are thrilled with her progress and wish her the best.

The Adventures of Jagger-Scottie Sheriff have concluded. He plans on relaxing over the next few days but knows that the peace and quiet won't last long. He is dedicated to next year's mayhem and is willing to help all Scotties during their transition.

Thank you for allowing Sheriff Jagger to assist Scotties in need and leave no Scottie behind. 🐾🐾♥️🐾🐾
